    New Year, New Look, New Opportunities 

    Here at the Nursery, a new bird area is under construction.  Many Gossetts' staff members are avid birders   (wild birds as well as…uh, well, domestic fowl.  See chicken event above) This season we are featuring Droll Yankee feeders--Yankee Flipper anyone?  If you haven't seen the video of squirrels being (very humanely!) whirled off the "Flipper", then you're in for a treat!  Humans definitely think it's hilarious, and I think many birds must be chuckling into their wings too from a branch or two above.  We're also featuring Audubon feeders and hummingbird feeders and supplies. In the works is a bulk birdseed station. Customers will be able to scoop specialty seed by the pound.  Coming soon, we hope.  And by the way, JohnnyCake Farms, a staple vendor at Gossetts' Saturday and Sunday Farmers' Market, has homemade suet that they'll custom carve off the block for you!

    Lisa Miller's Cottage Antiques business has relocated just around the corner to a charming antique blacksmith's shop next to the Horse and Hound Pub on Spring Street.  We want Gossetts' customers to be sure to visit her new shop; you'll fall in love and, as always, find the perfect gift. Our Gossett team will miss her terribly, but we celebrate her incredible vision--both her great 'eye' for wonderful items and her view of an exciting future in her gorgeous new digs.

    New garden classes, a new Nursery showroom and new products are all coming your way this growing season. Keep an eye here for more details as we share our vision with you. We can't wait to get our hands dirty, to get back to the soft earth and we bet you are feeling the same way. So stay tuned, great stuff is about to happen here at Gossett Nursery. To give you just a little sneak peak of what is happening this 2014 growing season, take a look at the photos below and check back soon for more details.

    2013.......It was a very good year

    The 2013 growing season is officially over and the Nursery has shifted over to "hibernation" mode, which means that the Nursery will be open on weekends from 9:00 am till 1:00 pm on Saturdays and from 10:00 am till 2:00 pm on Sundays. During that time you can come and shop at the farmers market or shop for houseplants in our greenhouse along with garden supplies for your home and garden.

    Cottage Antiques will also be open at the times quoted above and by appointment. The Gossett crew will take some time off, but right after the start of the New Year, we will be back planning for the 2014 growing season which will begin sometime in March, it all depends on the weather.

    Along with planning for the upcoming year, the crew is doing some cleanup, Tom is getting the yearly maintenance on all the vehicles done and Melissa is chatting with growers near and far to see what unique and special plants are on the horizon. Somewhere in February, once the plan for the year is finalized, the ordering begins and we make a decision on when to start our 7 day operation. A lot goes on at the Nursery in the winter, everything needs to be thought through in advance, since when the warm weather hits, we concentrate on setting up and getting everything ready for your arrival.

    If you think about it, no other shop or business (except a farm of course) goes through the amount of set-up and breakdown as a nursery does. It is a lot of work, but come spring, when everything begins to bloom again, it is well worth the effort. The Nursery is sort of like a old-time Hollywood outdoor set, where a scene for a movie is created out of nothing, exists for the shoot and then is torn down again, the space ready to be used for something different. Our "sets" include a Spring, Autumn and Winter look that is planned out in advance, each year getting a bit better from lessons learned from seasons past.

    We hope you enjoy the winter of 2013/2014 and look forward to seeing you again in the spring. Stop by on the weekends for the Farmers Market, to get some garden supplies or a special houseplant to bring some color to your winter. As in the past 35 years, we are excited for the coming growing season and all the amazing colors, scents and beauty that mother nature brings us year after year. Working at the Nursery, we get to be part of the natural cycle of the year, watching the Nursery going from Spring to Summer, Fall to Winter, and having you be part of that journey with us.

    Thank you for an outstanding 2013 (one of our best seasons ever!) and keep your eyes on this website, our Twitter feed and the Facebook page for updates and specials and, most importantly, when we kickoff the 2014 growing season!

    Happy Holidays!

    Here we go! The holiday season is officially here and folks are not wasting any time bringing home some of that cheer to their homes. Here at the Nursery, the Christmas Trees are up, the North Pole is 90% complete and the shop has transformed into a winter wonderland.

    Fraser Furs are the quality trees of choice that we sell at Gossett Nursery. These trees are the cadillac of all the variety of Christmas trees. They hold there needles much longer, are fuller and have stronger branches so you can hang as many ornaments on them as you like. Your home will be smelling pine fresh way past New Years with a Fraser Fur in the house. With sizes ranging from 4 to 14 feet and price points for every budget, you won’t have any problem finding that perfect tree for this very special time of year.

    The custom wreaths, swags, greens, ornaments, centerpieces and arrangements have been flying off the shelf! People love our quality hand made wreaths. Like snowflakes, no two are alike! If you want something really custom, come into the shop, pick out the type and size of the wreath, pick out the type and color bow and other items you want on your wreath and give the Gossett staff a few moments to create the perfect one for you.

    The North Pole is finished, so now is the time to drop off those letters to Santa! Bring the entire family and climb to the top of the North Pole. At the peak you will find a special express mailbox to place your letter to Santa. Don’t be surprised if you get a reply! The North Pole makes for a great photo opportunity so bring that camera or snap a fast shot with your smart phone. The North Pole is also a great place for the kids to hang out while you are shopping for that perfect tree.

    There is so much going on at the Nursery this time of year! So don’t delay, it is a short shopping season and here at the Nursery it has started with a bang. When you get tired of the hustle and crowds at the mall, come stop by, say hi and just relax for a few moments. Walk amongst the fraser furs and take in that smoothing pine tree sent, take a stroll into the greenhouse and be amazed at the bright and vibrant colors that nature supplies in the winter. Poinsettias, paperwhites and many other festive indoor plants are available to bring a splash of color wherever you home needs it.

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year for sure at the nursery! We love to see all of you smile with delight as you hurry home with your tree strapped to the roof, wreaths in the trunk and unique decorations filling your bags. And we are equally happy just to shake your hand, wish you a happy holiday and say thanks for all your support all throughout the year for the past 30 years!
